MD Rating Sites

(Getting a few things out here and off my desk)

This is a question I often wonder about.  I was glad to see that e-patients put a report online.  I haven’t read it yet, but I think it is something that many of you would want to know.

I think that the main issue Given hit upon in the report (but I’m not sure she recognizes as the primary challenge of doctor rating sites) is the numbers issue. With over 700,000 physicians in the U.S., a ratings database of 10,000 or even 20,000 is pitifully and woefully small.
